So I've recently lost 40lbs. 198 to 158. I have 18 more till my goal but now I want to start working out to get in shape.

What do you recommend?

I have insanity and JM 30 day shred. I've done insanity before but quit after week 2 and haven't tried JM yet....

Eta: I'm featured!! :-) so exciting!:-) lol

I use the 24 Line Video from Herbalife. It's an awesome workout for everyone. It's a multiple DVD collection in one when you order. It has anywhere from light to instense workout. I wouldn't do any of the workouts that involve weights, even small ones. If your still trying to lose 18 lbs I would stick to more of the cardio on there or with whatever you decide to do. Building muscle will not allow you to see your scale drop much. If your interested in getting the 24 Line video let me know. I can tell you where to get it from. :)

Insanity is WAY more intense than 30DS.  You'd likely get better results from it, if you can stick with it.  But maybe try JM first, and see what you think.  If it's too easy, then go for it with Insanity.

I've been alternating between Zuzka Light Zcut and Tracey Mallet F.I.T and getting great results. I'm also a huge fan of Jari Love who uses weights  and Mark Lauren you are your own gym who uses body weight.

I don't agree with not using any weights. From everything I have been researching, it will help a lot to start using weights like in 30DS since you will gain more muscle, which burns more calories than fat does. So by using weights to build lean muscle mass, you basically up your metabolism so you burn more even while NOT working out. 

While there may initially be less of a number loss on the scale, there will be more inches lost and your body will be trimmer.

I love Insanity. But if you haven't been working out you should start with something else. 30 day shred is a good one to start with.

I did the couch to 5k running program & seriously went from never having run a mile before to running a min of 2 miles, 3 times a week a year later. But don't get me wrong it was a quick boost in physical shape I literally got to a point where I was running 3 miles within 30 minutes after 9 weeks of that program. I like it BC it stuck with me by becoming habitual.

Definitely start with 30 day shred, if you haven't worked out in the past, it is a great place to start. JM also has mnay other workout dvds. I know most people say Insanity is TOUGH so do something else to start to get in shape and work your way up to that. Congrats on the weight loss so far! Be sure to measure yourself before starting it, many people say they don't lose much weight but they lose inches which is far better.

I have gotten great results doing Zumba and yoga (alternating days.) it's not really a "program" though :)
